Show You The 2016 TAG Heuer Monza 40th Anniversary Calibre 17 Replica Mens Watch

TAG Heuer Monza 40th Anniversary Calibre 17. Is it a proper vintage reedition or a modern watch with vintage accents. Let’s check out. The original Heuer Monza was launched in 1976 to mark Ferrari’s World Championship in 1975 with Niki Lauda and Clay Regazzoni, and was on sale until the early 1980s (source: Calibre 11). For collectors, the original and real Monza is the limited edition with Black PVD case, black dial and red accents. A swiss best watch with a cushion-shaped case, almost like an egg, with the Calibre 15 (an automatic chronograph movement from Heuer, close to the calibre 11, but with the small second oddly placed at 10), with the distinctive crown at 9 and a black dial mixing two scales: a tachymeter and a pulsometer.
2016 TAG Heuer Monza 40th Anniversary Calibre 17 ReviewIn 2000, the Monza was re-edited with a very different look and case, still cushion-shaped, but bulkier, more modern and less race-oriented. The watch measured 39mm and was available in several editions (time-only, chronograph, small second, gold or steel…). This case, that most modern collectors know as the Monza, is still, more or less, the one used for the 2016 TAG Heuer Monza 40th Anniversary Calibre 17.

The case is closer in style to the 2000s editions of the Monza than to the original egg-shaped one. It has this squared / cushion shape, with a strongly raised bezel, together with a round aperture for the dial. The 42mm case (that’s 3mm more than before) is now made in grade 5 titanium (sometimes modernity has some advantages…), with flanks polished and flat surfaces brushed. A good point for the choice of material. Usually, watches under 5,000 Euros are using grade 2 titanium. Here, TAG Heuer went for the more expensive and hard to machine grade 5 titanium – the only one that can be polished. The case is then coated with black titanium carbide – much more resistant than the PVD used in the vintage edition.
2016 TAG Heuer Monza 40th Anniversary Calibre 17 ReviewWhile the 1976 Heuer Monza featured a crown at 9 and a small second at 10 (two strange but iconic features), due to the use of the Heuer / Buren Calibre 15, the modern TAG Heuer Monza Replica 40th Anniversary has a modern automatic movement (calibre 17), meaning a small second classically located at 3 and a crown located at 3 too. That’s actually rather sad that TAG did not used the modern calibre 11, which features the crown at 9… a matter of choices and tastes. This automatic chronograph movement is based on a modular construction and features a 30-minute counter at 9 and a date window at 6 – also faithful to the original 1976 edition.

Cristiano Ronaldo Represent The TAG Heuer Formula 1 CR7 Replica’s Ambassador

In April 2014 TAG Heuer Best Swiss Replica decided to aim high, signing the first football partnership of its history with 31-year-old icon Cristiano Ronaldo, already a familiar figure in the world of watches. The footballer, who is known for his luxury car collection, also appreciates fine mechanical watchmaking, and has been seen sporting DeLacour and Corum watches on the covers of glossy magazines.

TAG Heuer Formula 1 CR7In 2010 he shot an advertising clip for watchmaker Time Force, which shows the sex symbol’s perfect physique in an erotic dream-like sequence. In 2013, Jacob & Co. signed an agreement with Cristiano Ronaldo, an avowed admirer and collector of the brand, for the advertising campaign to launch its SF 24 and Ghost models, an innovative and contemporary design that displays five different time zones.

TAG Heuer ambassador Cristiano Ronaldo Euro 2016Cristiano Ronaldo took part in the #DontCrackUnderPressure campaign launched last summer, and has appeared at TAG Heuer Mens Replica events such as the 2015 Monaco Grand Prix alongside other brand ambassadors. He also has his “own” watch: the TAG Heuer Formula 1 CR7 Replica, created with his input. This 42 mm limited edition in black titanium carbide coated steel has green accents to reflect a football pitch, and a black checkerboard dial customised with the CR7 logo in white. Accurate to one-tenth of a second, this three-counter chronograph is driven by a Ronda 5040D quartz movement, which also displays the date in a window at 4 o’clock. A black and green NATO strap perfectly complements the watch’s design. The TAG Heuer Replica Connected also comes with a special green and black Cristiano Ronaldo dial.
